    I finally found time to try this block . I sewed the strips 4"-2"-2", cut in squares and tried to match A and A , and B and B. There is no way I can make that into a square that matches up. Could someone please show how to make A and A into the right square. Would so appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance. Enjoy this board so much.

    I thought I posted these way back then - I know I made them up that same night.

    Sorry for the confusing 1st graphic - I was having a fight with (#&$(# Paint and EQ at the time, and I didn't have time/patience to go back and fix it.

    The warm blocks in the first graphic should have been reversed (so instead I put those diagonal lines so you can see which blocks get paired up).

    I might have changed the numbering from the prior posts - I'm not going back to check.

    But take a minute or two and it should make sense.



    For each star, you're only using one half of each of the warm and cool blocks.
    The block in the op is Layout #1 - I outlined the pieces in blue.

    The remaining pieces make Layout #3.
    If you make all four blocks and cut them as shown, you get all 4 layout colorings.

    A picture says a thousand words. I like MST's explanation.

    Thank you so much for this revised directions. I think I will be able to figure out how to put it together now. Love this board.

    One more question. Once the strips are sewn together, do you have to cut them into 8 1/2" squares first? Or is it possible to just cut the strips directly into 45 degree angle triangles by flipping your ruler 180 degrees for each cut? I guess that one would need a small ruler with a 45 degree angle side to make the second option feasible? Both options would still give you two sets A and B of the triangles. I agree with ruthrings that the strips are probably 4" - 2" - 2". Thanks to MTS for the great diagram for cutting the triangle sets of A and B!
